Well, hello there, welcome to my blog, thank you for dropping by.

The theme this month for our Hits and Highlights feature is:
"Magical May"

I opted for a literal take on the theme, choosing images from our catalogue and adding a couple of my own that conjured up Magic to me!

A background cut from the Watercolour Wash paper pad with a die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 2 was adhered to an A2 Smooth White top folding card base.

The photographs were cut from more Smooth White card using the Precious Polaroids die set.  As I was using Copics (available HERE), the centres were cut from Copic suitable card.  Both the dragon and cat were stamped using Hybrid Cement Grey ink, whilst the magic wand and bubbling cauldron were drawn by hand.

As for the wording - The M and D are from Birdie Brown Alphabet and Numbers stamp set whereas the S came from Which Way is the Candy as the other S was too big.  I was able to do this with the aid of Post It tape to mask some of the sentiment whilst inking, a technique I used to stamp Magic instead of Magical from Magical Dragons.

Dragon: G00, YG41, YG45, B41, B45, C2, C3, C5, E81, E84, YG21
Eyes: E11, E17, W8
Background: B0000, R0000
Wand: W0, W2, W3, W5, W7
Background: BG0000, B0000, B000, B00
Cat: C3, C5, C7, W8, B91, B93, RV93, YG41, YG45
Background: B0000, YG0000
Spell: YG41, YG45, C2, C3, C5
Background: B0000, YG0000

For M Magic and S Spell I added extra detail with various colours of Nuvo drops which I also used to decorate the background paper.  I also stamped ABC on to the "Spell" photo with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

Once the coloured images were glued into the Polaroid frames I adhered them to the card.  Both the Dragon and Cat were fixed with a Tape Runner, whilst the other two images were adhered with Foam Tape for added dimension.

I hope you liked my take on Magic May.

Until next time,
Happy Colouring.
